"Friendship, failure and gratification" are in focus in Life! Death! Prizes!, danced by Lucy Marinkovich and Rose Philpott and choreographed by Marinkovich and Anita Hunziker. There's virtuoso gumboot dancing and a torrent of falling and getting up again, interplay with two bemused audience volunteers, changing of clothes, awarding of prizes and some banalities, all coordinated to share with the audience an authentic experience of life's messiness” - Raewyn White, The NZ Herald.

 

“Lucy Marinkovich & Anita Hunzike are up to all kinds of absurdities in Life! Death! Prizes! It is full of surprises (nice ones) so I'm not going to say too much. One section, that makes clever use of the dancers' faces on iPads speaking a list of platitudes as the dynamic twosome grapple in a duet, captures the irony and astute observational window on human success, failure and bouncing back. It includes tables of trophies and rosettes, a large number of feathers, a tragically hilarious diva, the wearing of Thunderpants and tidying up. I think you probably have a picture. Yeah – no” – Dr. Linda Ashley, Theatreview.
